NAPP Selects NASCAR Image as Photo of the Week

The National Association of Photoshop Professionals, NAPP, selected an image of NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin as their "Photo of the Week" for the week of June 28, 2009. Photographers and illustrators world wide submit their work to NAPP by posting them on their portfolios where one image is selected as the Editor's Choice for the "Photo of the Week". The photographers and illustrators submitting their work are the best in the business in the many different fields of photography and graphic illustration and that is what makes this a very special honor.

The photograph of Hamlin was taken during a practice session for the Coca Cola 600 at Lowes Motor Speedway. The intensity of moment is clearly shown in his eyes and on his face. It is quite an honor to be recognized by an organization such as the NAPP, who set the standards for photography, Photoshop and graphics training and education.
